Earrings et al

Bilk gallery in Canberra is having another earring show and as you can see I’m in it. As are a bunch of far more frequent makers of earrings than I, so if you have ears and you’re in the area I hope you’ll get along.

Opening Friday 3 May 6pm – 8pm
It’s been three years since the last ‘WHAT IS IT WITH EARRINGS?!’ exhibition at Bilk Gallery! In fact it has been six years since the original title grew from a conversation about this wonderful form of adornment and the frustrated response to the lover of earrings with the exclamation – What is it with earrings?
This year we have an exceptional collection of outstanding earrings and ear ornamentations – one off and unique from; Peta Kruger, Johannes Kuhnen, Carlier Makigawa, Kath Inglis, Taweesak Molsawat, Melissa Cameron, Larah Nott, Marian Hosking, Bin Dixon Ward, Helen Aitken-Kuhnen, Wen-Miao Yeh, David Walker, Chris Bahng, Mio Kuhnen, Jane Bowden, Sim Luttin, Jane Reilly, Phillipa Gee, Simon Williams, Angela Giuliani, Julie Blyfield, Anna Daveron, Jill Hermans, Dan DiCaprio, Nellie Peoples, Godwin Baum, and Samantha Chester.

Also opening next Friday is the Wanneroo Gallery 2019 Community Art Awards & Exhibition.

Saturday 4 May – Friday 14 June 2019 // Monday to Saturday 10am – 4pm, at The Gallery, Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre, 3 Rocca Way, Wanneroo WA 6065

I have a new small sculptural work in the show, and I’ll be at the opening next Friday night, so if you’re a fellow-artist or invited guest please come say hi!

Finally, the new workshop is in use! This is the beginnings of a new exhibition, titled Marfa, TX, that will take place at Bilk in September of this year. It’s been a long time in the making – I opened my ‘time capsule’ from my 2017 trip to the adopted home of Donald Judd a couple of weeks ago, and I’m just about finished mapping my ‘finds’ from it both online, and, as you can see, on my bench. I plan to share my google map here soon!
